Vancouver Pride

Vancouver Pride is one of the largest Pride events in Canada. It takes place usually at the very end of July or the first few days of August.

The Parade, which is usually around three hours, centers on Vancouver's West End, ending on Sunset Beach. This is when the eponymous Sunset Beach Festival starts, immediately after the Parade.

The festival is a waterfront afterparty attended by over 100,000 people. Vendors, organizers, and performers come out to celebrate and keep the festivities going. People from all over North America visit Vancouver to take advantage of the warm Summer months and celebrate Pride on Vancouver's favorite beach.
